Stress, Cancer, Diabetes and Heart Attacks

Stress Frequency Can kill You. Stress is Our Number 1 Killer!

Stress is in the mind, and it can spread all over a person and kill them just as quickly as a  disease, if allowed. And in fact, stress can cause or open that door for that very disease you fear. Stress is a body frequency that you give yourself.

Stress is not a state of mind… it’s measurable and dangerous, and humans  can’t seem to find their off-switch.

These words of warning come from renowned author and award-winning neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky in the documentary Stress: Portrait of a Killer.

It is now a known fact that our stress frequency lowers our vulnerability to all diseases by affecting all our bodily systems including and especially our immune system. Immune cells become sloppy, change their health frequency and they make a mess of their job by behaving unintelligently. With more stress, that mess gets bigger, more out of hand, creating collateral damage.

It is now a known fact that stress can be the starting cause of cancer, diabetes and heart attacks. So we can deduct from this that higher stress equates to a shorter life expectancy unless we take action.

Professor Sir Michael Marmot performed a 40-year long stress study in which he followed 18,000 men occupying various positions with the British Civil Service. His interesting findings paralleled what Sapolsky found in his baboon study:

The higher your status, the lower your risk for stress-related diseases.

Marmot found that men in the lowest employment grades were much more likely to die prematurely than men in the higher grades – there is in fact a “social gradient” for mortality. This is weird. Wonder what you make of it.

Sapolsky explains how you are more vulnerable to stress if the following factors are true:

  • You feel like you have no control
  • You’re not getting any predictive information (how bad the challenge is going to be, how long it will go on, etc.)
  • You feel you have no way out
  • You interpret things as getting worse
  • You have no “shoulder to cry on” (e.g., lack of social affiliation or support)

 

But Are You a Stress Junkie?

The paradox here is that humans have essentially become addicted to stress. There is “good stress” and “bad stress” — meaning, you experience certain stressful experiences as unpleasant and seek to avoid them, but others you may actually seek out because they’re fun.

For example, bungee jumping, skydiving, rollercoasters, motor car racing, and scary movies are experiences that may flip your thrill-switch—and your frequency body responds to those stresses in the same way as if a tiger were chasing you.

Your muscles tense, your heart pounds, your respirations increase, and your body stops all of its non-essential processes. This can be pleasantly exhilarating, and for some rather addictive… you might know someone whom you could describe as an “adrenalin junkie.” A thrill is simply the relinquishing of a bit of control in a setting that feels safe. But when you’re in that heightened state of arousal 24/7, stress takes its toll on your body and changes its frequency — whether you perceive the stress as “good” or “bad.”

Stress Takes a Toll on Your Brain and Adds Inches to Your Waistline

Science has established that stress can lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer but did you know that it can also lead to weight gain—of the worst kind? Stress-induced weight gain typically involves an increase in belly fat, which is the most dangerous fat for your body to accumulate, and increases your cardiovascular risk. Stress alters the way fat is deposited because of the specific hormones and other chemicals your body produces when you’re stressed.

Prolonged stress can also damage your brain cells and make you lose the capacity to remember things. Stress disrupts your neuroendocrine and immune systems and appears to trigger a degenerative process in your brain that can result in Alzheimer’s disease. Stress can also accelerate aging by shortening your telomeres – the protective genetic structures that regulate how your cells age.

In the words of Dr. Lissa Rankin, author of Mind Over Medicine:

“Our bodies know how to fix broken proteins, kill cancer cells, retard aging, and fight infection. They even know how to heal ulcers, make skin lesions disappear and knit together broken bones!

But here’s the kicker — those natural self-repair mechanisms don’t work if your natural healthy body frequencies are stressed!

The Dutch Famine Study is not the only scientific research to show that your mental and physical health can be permanently affected by childhood stress and trauma. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study is an ongoing research project that analyzes the relationship between stressful childhood experiences and health outcomes later in life. There is a very strong correlation between childhood stress and many diseases, including cancer, depression, and heart disease.

ACE is examining the effects of:

  • Recurrent physical abuse
  • Recurrent emotional abuse
  • Contact sexual abuse
  • An alcohol and/or drug abuser in the household
  • An incarcerated household member
  • Someone who is chronically depressed, mentally ill, institutionalized, or suicidal
  • Mother is treated violently
  • One or no parents
  • Emotional or physical neglect

These traumas in life can now be dealt with through alternative practices.

Public enemy number one

The stress hormone cortisol, released by your adrenal glands as part of the “fight-or-flight” response, is the master hormone that regulates many aspects of your body’s stress response. However, cortisol levels are typically elevated across the board in today’s culture, to the detriment of mental and physical health. The impact stress is having on society as a whole is so profound that Psychology Today calls cortisol Public Enemy Number One.

Evidence of the societal effects of unmanaged stress is disturbingly evident on the evening news, with seemingly ever-increasing episodes of anger, violence, bullying, suicides, and mass shootings, which are unfortunate, albeit extreme examples of what happens when people cannot cope with their stress.

When you have effective stress reduction tools, you and your children are mentally and physically healthier, more resilient and less likely to be depressed, sick, or violent.

Is It Time to Send Yourself to Rehab?

Sapolsky’s baboons prove that stress is not inevitable. You can change your environment and your responses. And as you learn how to effectively decrease your stress level, your cortisol will stabilize, your blood pressure will drop, and your health will improve in just about every way. I’ll tell you more about using frequency to de-stress yourself soon – its new and its working well. But first things first.

It’s important to realize that stress management isn’t something you save up to do on the weekend – it needs to be done on a daily basis, because that’s how often stress rears its ugly head. There are many different stress reduction techniques, and what works for you may not work for another.

Although good food choices, adequate sleep, exercising, mind exercises, music, laughter and meditation are possible part solutions, you need to firstly build, balance and strengthen your immune system and insure it has the natural ability to know the good from the bad cells and is running at a healthy frequency.

If you already have a dreaded disease or even a dormant one, your first step is to take Transfer Factors – a natural immune booster molecule – to strengthen the correct immune cells to take out any disease you are carrying.
